David Bryson (ADR Bulletin vol 4.10 at 133) has contributed to the discussion about ADR in a way that reflects well upon the growing maturity of ADR processes and practices within Australia. At the heart of the discussion is a useful meander into the evolution of processes, and a view from the coalface of ADR practice. As a dispute resolver, I find this discussion useful and my comments are written to encourage further discussion. However, at the same time, it is apparent that some views that are attributed to me in respect of my book Alternative Dispute Resolution require some clarification and amplification.
